Slotted in the Barrel

“Slotted in the Barrel” is an original composition in which I try to combine the feel of 60’s instrumental guitar rock with a somewhat more sophisticated musical and harmonic language than was typical for that genre. This one is in a Ventures/Surf Rock style.

Impact Zone

“Impact Zone” is an original surf-rock composition in which I try (and I think I succeed) in getting a pretty authentic sounding Ventures/garage rock vibe.

I’m Only Surfing (Sleeping)

I’m Only Sleeping” is credited as a Lennon–McCartney song but was written primarily by John Lennon. It was released on the Beatles’ 1966 studio album Revolver. In the United States and Canada, it was one of the three tracks that Capitol Records cut from the album and instead included on Yesterday and Today, released two months before Revolver.

My instrumental arrangement turns the song into a surf-rock number, so I have retitled it “I’m Only Surfing”.

Girl

Girl” was primarily written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon–McCartney) and included on the Beatles 1965 album Rubber Soul. This is one of the more melancholic and complex of the Beatles’ early love songs. My instrumental arrangement is surf-rock.

Another Girl

Another Girl” was released in 1965 on the album Help! and included in the film. The song was written by Paul McCartney but credited to Lennon–McCartney.

The original version is a rock-country-swing common in Beatles material. My instrumental arrangement is relentless guitar/surf rock.
